Ross, John Knox (1890–1934)

Mr John Knox Ross, a well-known grazier and breeder of stud sheep, and noted throughout Australia as a member of the famous Harden team of polo players, died yesterday in a private hospital in Sydney after an illness of several months. Mr Knox Ross was one of an outstanding trio of brothers in a polo team that won matches on most of the principal grounds of Australia, and for a time was considered invincible in Dudley Cup tournaments. Originally he played in the No. 1 position, but later developed into a brilliant, accurate hitter No. 2, and was regarded as one of the soundest players in the game. He was always superbly mounted, and revelled in a hard game. Mr. W. F. Ross, M.L.A. for Cootamundra, is a brother.
